Metro Detroit's Drive In Movie Theatres
May 11, 2015
We have invited Karen Dybis to discuss Metro Detroit's Drive In movie Theaters with a focus on the Ford Wyoming DriveIn in Dearborn. This talk delves into why drivein theaters boomed, why they went bust and what we can do to prevent their complete demise.
The talk centers around her book, "The Ford-Wyoming DriveIn: Cars, Candy and Canoodling in the Motor City."
The May 11 program depends on the availability of the Library auditorium for May 11, which will be confirmed 60 days before the event.
Keep checking Facebook, the Historical Commission site (ctwphc.org) or the Historical Society web site for updates.
